Well Iâ€™ve had my Buell 1125cr for 3 months now and have over 10,000 kms up. I thought Iâ€™d have a go at doing a review. Iâ€™m not what Iâ€™d call an expert rider or an expert on bikes, but I do ride more than most people, using my bike as a commuter riding 160km/day. I have been really enjoying the 1125cr and have found it a great bike to ride for my commute. Some people have said that Buells are a hot bike and have vibration issues. The engine is a little rattley sounding at slower rpm, but I wouldnâ€™t say this flows through the bike and that it is very smooth and has a great power delivery. The bike maintains a cool temperature in all weather and traffic conditions. I really love the look of the standard exhaust; while the bike has a nice note, I really wish it was much louder. I would say it doesnâ€™t really like the slower stop start city traffic, in that it doesnâ€™t like cruising much below the 3000rpm mark, the rear brake takes some stomping on if you use it to aid in the slower traffic, I usually feather on the clutch in these speeds (around 40km) to make for a smooth ride. It is a brilliant bike if you like lane splitting. The clutch is a little different in that it doesnâ€™t grab at the same point as other bikes Iâ€™ve ridden. I found that the front brake is very sufficient but again can take some getting used to. As mentioned the rear brake takes a bit of effort, but at the same time itâ€™s more than adequate to lock up the back wheel, it may also be able to be improved with another brand of pads, wouldnâ€™t say this is a necessity, but would make slower riding easier if you use the rear brake for this. I took it on a trip from Melbourne to Nowra around 850kms, and found it a comfortable bike for the trip, the best thing was the ability to adjust my setting position from a more upright to a lay down style, alternating the pressure on my rear end . It was awesome to ride through Kangaroo Valley, I found myself improving my riding and my confidence with the bike. I usually get around 5.8ltrs/ 100km when riding sensibly, it can get a little thirsty at speeds of 110+ kms and when giving it a good thrashing through the traffic. The best I have gotten from a tank is 350kms with about 1.5 ltrs left over. Now for the bad point so far. When I rode up to Nowra, I only just made it, my battery was almost flat and not charging, it turned out that I had a broken stator. To cut a long story short, I towed the bike home to Melbourne. I must say though that the service at Harley City in Melbourne has been awesome, they removed a stator from a brand new bike and had me back on the road in no time. Hopefully this wonâ€™t happen again, but Iâ€™ll keep you posted. I have hit a false neutral on the way up from 5th to 6th a few times, I had put it down to lazy shifting, but have always thought I used enough authority in my change. The bike is brilliant at normal and high speeds, the acceleration is smooth and to die for. I have never had the front wheel right up off the ground, thatâ€™s just not my style of riding and donâ€™t have the confidence. I have given it a good boot full and it is more than fast/quick enough for me, far quicker than my non standard WRX STi without lifting the front wheel a bit. I have only ridden with the standard clubman style bars for one day and found them very uncomfortable, the optional raised bars are far better suited and more comfortable, vision is also better from the mirrors. That being said, if you are always on the gas and like a sportier feel, I think that the standard cafÃ© position would give superior performance and handling, and it just looks more aggressive. Maybe not the best of a review but hopefully I have given some people some more info.
